Clarion Collection Hotel Amanda

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were here for a convention during a weekend and stayed at the hotel for two nights and had both breakfast and dinners at the hotel. Rooms were large and clean with good sleeping quality. Breakfast had a lot of selections, both hot and cold so I consider it as a normal breakfast in scandinavian hotel. Dinners was very good, first evening we had dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was good and wine or beer could be purchased in the lobby bar. Second evening we had a private dinner and then the we got a three course meal which was delicious. I think it was high quality food and I am very satisfied with this weekend. The location is perfect; very central in Haugesund just by the water, so it must be lovely during summer to sit outside and see the boats pass by. Would defenitely stay here again if I go to Haugesund.

This hotel is nicely located and has friendly staff. Rooms are good but nothing special, very importantly they are clean. Breakfast is average but good as it should be. The gym is small but well equipped, also nice was the fact that they offered sauna (didn't use it)

Stayed for one night in a room on the third floor. First impression of the reception is not very positive, as it seems something from a small hotel. The lift is also very tight and you become wondering how small the room could also be. But the room was ok, enough space, pragmatic decoration and extras, Nordic style, no luxury at all. The breakfast was very nice with different options, and was probably the highlight of the stay. The price was definitely excessive, 1470 nok for a single room is definitely high for the service provided and the type of hotel in question. There are other options in Haugesund with a better value for money.

This review is based on a one night stay in a superior double room on the sixth floor. - We came in way early, at around 11:00, and knew that check-in wasn't until 15:00, so we first asked if we could put our luggage there until a room was vacant and ready, but to our pleasant surprise, we were given our room right away, and without paying the 200 NOK you usually have to pay for an earlier check-in. So that was a nice start. The room we got turned out to be the one they use in their own promotional material. It's top floor, facing the harbour, and has slanted windows in the pitched ceiling, giving you a good view of both the harbour and the sky above. One downside with this room was that it's very far away from the lobby and the elevators. You have to first take a lift in the lobby to the fifth floor, then walk forever, and then take the stairs one more floor, because in that part of the building there's no lift. But if you're healthy and don't mind walking a bit, it's worth it. The room is an OK size, it has a modern bathroom/shower, there's a (I think) king size bed which was comfortable enough. There are things like an ironing board and iron, and a small coffee maker with complimentary coffee and tea capsules. There's a mini bar, but it was empty (presumably you can ask to have it stocked if you wish). There are also a couple of chairs and an office-type desk. The usual. There's no air condition (I don't think), but this is Norway anyway, so... The only heat source seemed to be one small electric oven on the wall beneath one of the windows. I thought the temperature in the room was OK, but my girlfriend thought it was way too cold, so I guess your results may vary. Breakfast was nice, with mostly everything you usually see, but we missed some pastry / sweeter things like croissants or something. A couple of positive features with the hotel are that during the day, you can make your own waffles, and in the afternoon there's an included meal (lasagne when we were there, but we didn't get to try it, as we were "out on the town" at the time). The cleaning of the room was mostly good, but there was a streak here and there on the walls. The paint had started flaking in some areas, especially around the windows. But again; the bathroom seemed rather newly refurbished, and overall the room gave a rather modern impression. It's also quite well located; it's walking distance from most things you could want to see, and along the harbour just outside the hotel, there are several good restaurants and bars in a row. Actually, the hotel kind of warns about noise from these restaurants and bars, especially during summer I guess, but I think you'll be safe with a room as high up as this one. We enjoyed our short stay, and would recommend this hotel.

Nice hotel friendly staff and really good service and breakfast, good location in town center and next to harbor and close to other restaurants. The Amanda film team was a cool decoration inside lobby and hallway

We went from Bergen to Haugesund to attend a baptism. To avoid an early start on Sunday, and being tired, we decided to stay overnight. This was a bad idea, as our room was located right next to one of the hotel's event rooms, in which they played live music on full blast and doors wide open. In the night we had to get up from bed to change rooms to 3 storeys up. The music was still audible from there, but better. After a poor night's sleep, we ended up tired and could just as well have dropped the stay and started early from Bergen on Sunday. It is probably a good hotel for events, but stay away if you're just looking for a good night's sleep.

Greate location, Deluxe rooms was very nice and the view was greate. Good service and greate breakfast. Also free evening food that was greate. Nice fresh salomon. Tasted Fantastic.. Easy parking in cellar if ordered with the room.

Location is in the middle of restaurant area at the water front. Rooms at lower floors to be avoided if you want to open curtains or even window. Cheap toiletries but that is normal in Scandinavia. Price was very high hence no value for money. Staff was friendly and nice breakfast.

Location is superb, right at the harbor area in walking distance to everything you need. We stayed in a delux room, loved the chairs and the view. But you don't stay here if you are looking for a peaceful night as the sound from bars & nightlife is impossible to ignore.

It is a quiet, and nice hotel with nice and quiet rooms that are clean. Ther personel was very helpful and the breakfast was good in a qiuet and nice resturant. The walk outsinde the hotel is also very nice
